now to debate the issue are the news editor at townhall.com, and former aide to senator john kerry is with us. katy, i'm generally extremely supportive of law enforcement. i want them successful in their job to keep our streets safe, and offense n offense no i havee everybody's text and e-mails for two years, that will help them. if we save and record everybody's phone conversations, that will help a lot. if we video tape everybody 24 hours a day, that's going to help, but where does the line get drawn? >> exactly. where does the line get drawn? this is equivalent to putting a gps in everyone's car and seeing where they go for two years, to make everyone wear a recording device and record conversations for two years. i'm also very supportive of local law enforcement and law enforcement in general. essentially what they're doing is asking for everyone in the country to be turned into suspects before they have any evidence that they've committed a crime. in my book, that's a bit of a government overreach and opening the door right for more tierney into people's personal and private l
to it -- >> going to say it's brand, it's about brand. >> at that moment with mccain and john kerry because of foreign relations issue and this is the way mccain sort of gigged john kerry and kerry teased him back. >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> thank you very much, mr. president. >> and there was a lot of joking after that. a lot of laughing. >> we should have showed. >> two of them have been close. people forget that the vietnam caucus, as strained as things have gotten in washington. >> they worked hard on that. >> what remains of it. >> with kerry and jack reed and the guys that are left, they're all -- they all look out for each other. >> where do you think it stands? there are some suggesting the president should let the susan rice issue quiet down and let her withdraw. >> there are aides in the white house a little frustrated saying hey, mr. president, you got to make a decision. the fact of the matter he hasn't made a decision between susan rice or john kerry. the argument being made, they're sort of hanging in the wind. john kerry has been very -- he has really kept a lo
john kerry. rice is making the rounds on capitol hill these days meeting with lawmakers who are critical of the comments that she made about the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans. those meetings did not go very well or so it would seem from the comments from senators afterwards. senator kerry seems to be taking a different approach, staying out of the spotlight. asking supporters not to overtly lobby on his behalf. who is likely to get the job? angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst, marjorie clifton a arm toer consultant with the obama campaign and principal with clifton consulting. interesting thing, if there are to be, let's say president obama nominates susan rice and she is said to be his first choice. the guy who leads the hearings on the foreign affairs committee would be senator kerry. >> yeah, no, it is the irony of it all. kerry strategy staying under the radar probably is a good one. the only thing i think would be a barrier to susan rice's nomination would be the benghazi coverage one could argue is pretty unfair given all she did read a u
rice in her statement, she voiced support for john kerry as an alternative. listen to what she said. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> interesting. how much self-interest is at play here? if kerry were to get that job, republicans could pick up his senate seat, right? >> that is correct. remember, scott brown picked up the kennedy seat in massachusetts and he lost it to elizabeth warren in the last election. so there is that scenario that if john kerry were to get that post, then that opens it up again for scott brown to pick up that seat. a couple of things. first of all, it's widely known out there that john kerry wants the job. but, of course, you know, the story we've all been talking about that susan rice appears to be above on that list. that's the first thing. all of this speculation about who could get that job and, you know, if he got that job then this person could pick up the seat in massachusetts, it really is all just sort of hypothetical here. the president has not put forward a nomination yet. there's a
think john kerry has been the leading candidate all along. but some people at the table think john kerry has negative bus i think he is the leading candidate. the other big ticket item here is the treasury secretary. you can see geithner leaving. and there is talk of erskine bowles or charles djo lew. >> they lost colin, the mild mannered senator in congress and the senator that introduced rice when she was nominated to be the u.n. ambassador, when you lose collins you have lost the world. i don't understand how she went around with meetings to present her best side to the mccain and graham. to collins, ayotte and came out on the -- i'm talking about susan rice. she came out on the wrong end of this. and for some reason. i think her nomination is in deep trouble. the president if he is smart not going to nominate here. if he does, benghazi issue is going to rise again. >> bret: u.n. palestinian vote significance big picture? >> there is a great irony. the vote happened precisely and deliberately on the day on which in 1947 the general assembly voted to wide to british palestine to two st
as secretary of state? lawmakers outraged over reports it could be ambassador susan rice. john kerry also a possibility. >> kate middleton spending her third day in the hospital after suffering an extreme form of morning sickness. >> prince william was 6 hours by her side. he seemed relaxed and even crack add smile. she may have to be hospitalized for several another days from severe nausea. we will have a live report from london. >> christmas came last night to washington with the lighting of the capital christmas tree. >> 3, 2 rn, 1. >> over 10,000 lights covered the 65 foot tree called in from colorado, by the way. house speaker john boehner led the holiday ceremony and an eagle scout from colorado helped him flip the lights. a beautiful site at the capital. that is your 5@5:00. >>> democrats and republicans are in firm agreement on one thing. they are nowhere near a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. peter doocy is life in washington with more. >> republicans have had their proposal to avoid the fiscal cliff complete with 800 billion of new revenue over a decade on the table fo
-800-medicare. >> bret: finally tonight, there has been a lot of speculation about senator john kerry being on the short list for secretary of state. and during a news conference today, it became quite clear where senator john mccain's allegiance lies. >> senator mccain? >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. [ laughter ] >> thank you very much, mr. president. [ laughter ]
you think the president should choose? >> i think he is going to pick john kerry. i don't like the guy. what he did after the vietnam is disgraceful. he lost badly in 2004. 145 days after he gets picked. massachusetts has to have a special election for next u.s. senator and that will be scott brown. >> heather: and his name is being thrown around also as secretary of state. >> it's interesting. i'm not so sure because of the senator brown issue, i'm not so sure the president is going to go for senator kerry for in any position. >> i was going to say that i think he is said set on susan rice. susan rice has gone along with benghazi, if we're nice to radical islamists we can all hold hands. he wants to push that through because he thinks he can do anything. >> heather: i have to tell you i -- i totally agree with you analysis of susan rice. i don't think she is great person for the john but i disagree with you with why. >> the new c.i.a. director will have to contend with a growing world instability and world threats and boosting the reputation of the agency. what do you think the presid
question if he were to name john kerry, for example, the senator from massachusetts as his secretary of state, he would be confirmed presumably, would that open the door for a republican to be the next senator though from massachusetts? i'm speaking about the current senator, the outgoing senator scott brown who's still pretty popular there. >> he is popular. that's a great point. i know he was just defeated, but he is a formidable political talent. i honestly have no idea if that's playing a role in these deliberations. clearly john kerry is qualified to be the secretary of state as well. my best guess is it's exactly what ari was saying which is the president is asking who is most in sync with my foreign policy? ambassador rice is someone who helped form late the obama foreign policy. i think senator kerry would too. democrats are now in a position where we have an embarrassment of riches. i really hope they don't start worrying about this or that political matter. in democrats can't win elections in massachusetts, there's something fundamentally wrong with what we're doing. >> he
on a sunday show to get the secretary of state job. she says she would much prefer senator john kerry for that job. because, yeah, he's never been a politician. or presumably, she's still okay with the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's not like she's ever run for anything. you know, obviously she's never been on a sunday show. if she had been on a sunday show, she'd ever gone on a sunday show, that obviously would have disqualified her from becoming secretary of state. that would show her to be behaving in a political fashion. everybody knows the secretary of state cannot do anything political. seriously? there is a mismatch between the seriousness of the things that we actually need to get done as a nation and the quality of the system in washington that is the means by which we must get those things done. syria is not our war, and syria is not going to be our war. but there are tens of thousands of people dead there already. and the regime there appears to have just turned off the lights, pulled the plug, disconnected that country entirely from the eyes of the world.
of state opening. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and easily confirmed by the colleagues. >> there are other key cabinet picks. secretary of the defense will have to contend with a destabilized middle east and rising threats from asia when big defense cuts are anticipated. former republican chuck ha gel of nebraska and ashton carter and michelle florinoid . act being director michael more accident orell . homeland security advisor michael vickers and former senator chuck hagel if he doesn't get the defense job. thosen will show how the president will proceed. >> thank you. >> a double-decker bus crashes in a bridge in the miami international airport. florida, police say 32 people were on board when it collided with the low bridge. the bus was too tall to fit. buses and other tall vehicles are thosed to use a another entrance. the driver is not familiar with the area. hawaii, an oregon man attacked by a shark snorkeling off of the coast of maui. he got a look at the shark who bit in the left leg. he thinks it is a tiger shark. his attitude is pretty good
. this is a chance to have a new shop. >> susan rice has been named as a possible replacement. john kerry of massachusetts. what are their records on climate change? the big controversy around susan rice is in her investment of $600,000 in transcanada, which is the oil pipeline company building the keystone xl pipeline from the alberta tar sands to the gulf of mexico. >> which ever of them become secretary of state -- although senator kerry has certainly been active on climate change. we hope that the new secretary of state changes the policy that brought the u.s. to the point where it is putting an emissions reduction commission on the table here at the international negotiations without explaining how they will get to it. we hope that we will not have comments from the negotiators where they say, in 2015, we will be negotiating an agreement will apply in 2020. scientists tell us right now that every year counts. we cannot wait until 2025 to start cutting emissions. we hope that whoever is our new secretary of state, that we see a change in these policies. as long as the u.s. does with i
. >> what about john kerry? you met with john kerry. >> i also met with susan rice. i've known john kerry for many years. >> what were those meetings like? >> good. thorough, deep. yeah. someone who has been ob this issue for a long period of time. he visited the region quite often. >> you think kerry would make a good secretary of state? >> he's been -- whatever it is he did. and i have reason to believe that he would definitely perform exceptionally well in that position. >> speaking of senators, there are some people on capitol hill who say one of their major concerns is whether now with this new status you will go to the international criminal court and, for example, try to cite israel for war crimes. can you say categorically you won't do that? >> what i can say is i think it really is very important to use what happened yesterday as a building block toward doing that which susan rice was talking about yesterday. yes, by virtue of putting a button it's not going to happen. but it's the same forum that have given israel that birth certificate some 65 years ago. and that's exactly what
to be the next secretary of state replacing hillary clinton. a little exchange between john mccain and john kerry earlier today. watch this. >> senator mccain? >> thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> i think thank you very much, mr. president. this is what happens when you get two losers up here. we're just having fun. >> so here's the serious question, though, i'll start, james, with you, once again. who do you think would be a better secretary of state? would it be john kerry, the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, or susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations? >> i honestly have no idea. i would say john kerry because i know senator kerry. i don't know if i've met ambassador rice before. but to be honest with you, both of them are imminently qualified people. i can't imagine either one of them would do anything other than a spectacular job. but i'm a political guy, not a foreign policy guy. i'm just unable to really render a very knowledgeable -- >> let me rephrase the question. politically speaking, who would the president be better off nominating? >> politically
of a chemical attack as well. with senator john kerry. >>> and on the eve of legalized marijuana. pot smokers find themselves in legal limbo. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in the situation room. >>> may hem exploded outside the presidential palace in cairo. two people are dead in what was once largely peaceful protests against the egyptian president mohammad morsi, anti-government demonstrators charged presidential supporters with rocks and molotov cocktails after being kicked off palace grounds. and now there are reports of masked men storming the headquarters of morsi's muslim brotherhood. reza sayah is in cairo. >> reporter: just a remarkable scene, where you have opponents of president morsi and supporters of president morsi locked in an incredibly tense stand-off. let's set the scene for you. that's the presidential palace over there. this is the main road that runs in front of the palace. these are some old train tracks that have divided this road on this side you have opponents of the president chanting anti-president

of here. if this thing does play out like some does suspect and john kerry ends up getting nominated to run the pentagon, that makes for a very interesting senate race in the state of massachusetts, once again. >> maybe, maybe not. what people keep forgetting in all of this is that the massachusetts legislature is run by democrats who could always just change the law back so that there's not a special election and it becomes an appointment, again. yes, some dominos falling in massachusetts if senator kerry gets that post, particularly if there is an election, which is the state of the law right now. scott brown expected to run for it and about as strong a republican as you can get in the state of massachusetts. >> molly ball, thank you so much. lynn sweet, one of my favorite ladies. lynn, i did not get to ask you about your jesse jackson, but i would encourage folks to read on what you wrote over gesjesse jackson jr. over the past week or so. some very insightful reporting. >>> 31 days out to the fiscal cliff. we will go live to see what the president is saying to house leaders and w

's warren buffett and john kerry and diane feinstein. this is a tax on people desperately trying to become rich but the truly wish don't want them to. finally, the most important point is in two years we've got to take back the senate. >> sean: i don't want to talk about the election. >> the republicans need to concentrate on making sure this economy gets blamed on obama. there are things they can do like propose tax cuts or rather tax hikes for the truly rich, ie, warren buffett. no more state and low tax deductions. cut out that hollywood foin accounting. let's go after the 1% of the 1%. forget the 1% of income earners. >> sean: there's a lot of good ideas there. >> thank you. >> sean: they have to stand against america going broke. >> they can do that by making clear it's not a good deal, making speeches, and not raising taxes on the job creators. >> sean: how about they pass a bill that extends all the bush tax cuts. how about that? >> then the senate will reject it. >> sean: then who is to blame? >> at some point if the bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, i promise
for secretary of defense to replace leon panetta who is stepping down. another top contender, john kerry. but the president is also considering to replace hillary clinton with john considerry. susan rice for the united nations, she is still facing opposition because of statements she made about the libyan attack. >>> president obama is meeting with two different groups today. both have concerns about the fiscal cliff crisis. he will lead with the ceos of business leaders and then later, he will meet with native- american tribal leaders. the one issue where he's refusing to budge in fiscal cliff issues. >>> the voters passed prop 30, which raises taxes on people who earn more than $250,000 a year. it also increases the sales tax. well, the ucla and der son forecast says because of prop 30 -- anderson forecast says because of prop 30, unemployment will not improve as fast and personal income will be less than expected. but economists say california is still on track for economic growth and more jobs. >>> well, sheriffs in solano county want your help. they are trying to catch vandals who d
? >> large one. there is a happy senior senator from massachusetts right now. john kerry, who is considered also in the running for secretary of state. the why i see it, susan rice had two auditions. the original audition, five sunday talk shows where the famous talking point controversy emerged. that didn't go well. now a second audition meeting with the important republican senators, including susan colins from maine who is not a tea party dye in the wool die-hard red meat conservative who said i have more concerns now after the meeting than before. i think her nomination has not begun. it's in trouble. >> so that point, she had rehearsal over the long career. it hasn't just been two months. she has had a long career in the foreign service. she worked in the clinton administration. she has done a good job in this administration. so i think to minimize her career down to two months is a mistake. >> shannon: but they are obviously -- she is under oath and there will be questions that haven't been asked before that some will be -- >> including for broad sweep of that career. we should rememb
question too. what also seems tor clear here is there's an incentive to make sure it's john kerry so scott brown has one more bite at the apple. but i do think it would be better esthetics if the next time they are going to attack a member of the administration, they actually showed they weren't fixated on black appointees. one after the other, they seem more comfortable to attack black appointe appointees. that's a big concern for people across the country. >> what about the president though? he clearly is backing susan rice. but is this a fight worth having? i mean -- >> this is a man who has won office, who is not going to be on the ballot again. he said i'm going to back the people who i think can do the best job. if you have an issue with my general because he was talking to this socialite in florida, forget about it. that's not what the war is about. let the man do the job. if rice came on and did what the cia told her to do, that's pretty much what any senator would do too. so this is a nonissue. >> i hope no one takes their eye off the ball, which is going after the people that com
of state or nominate her, rather, but some bad week with senate republicans on the hill whereas john kerry the senator from massachusetts had a very good week and it looks like republicans would confirm him for just about anything that the president wanted to appoint him to. >> morris, your picks. >> we'll let him appoint him to secretary of defense. my worst week is benjamin netanyahu. this guy has a real problem on his hand. you know, the u.n. situation, west bank expansion, picking the wrong guy for president. netanyahu, you've got a problem and you have to figure it out quickly. the best week for me is what i'm calling obama 2.0. the president is out there and this is new obama and gauge taking his message to the american people and strong leadership and expect more of this, more of an activist president in the next four years. >> okay. susan, how about yours? >> i think ambassador susan rice had a horrible week. not only, it started out with the best intentions going up to meet with these senators, but especially after a meeting with senator collins from maine, it just really went dow
. they're actually calling themselves goncha-preneurs. >>> john kerry is firing at santorum orr a treaty. they rejected the ratification of the treaty on tuesday despite appearance on the floor by former majority leader bob dole in his wheelchair all in an effort to draw support. santorum explained the opposition in a piece published in "the daily beast" saying in part, let me yoquote, our natio has been the worldwide leader. we suld be telling nato and not the other way how to have dignity. senator kerry said santorum doesn't know what he's talking about. >> i have great respect for both rick and his wife karen and their daughter and their family. he is a strong family man. but he either simply hasn't read the treaty or doesn't understand it or he was just not factual in what he said because the united nations has absolutely zero, zero, i mean, zero ability to order or to tell or to even -- i mean, they can suggest but they have no legal capacity to tell the united states to do anything under this treaty. nothing. >> senator kerry referring there to santorum's daughter bella born with a
candidate, at one point, from hillary clinton to barack obama, from john kerry to john edwards, all of them, they all played for their plan with this simple phrase, "rolling back the bush tax cuts." they've been doing it for eight years. so politically, that's why the president has to draw that line in the sand. >> he draws that line in the sand, but harold ford, what happens when republicans, at least a small number of them, go ahead and raise taxes on the top 2% and then turn to the white house and say, okay. now we'll move. and then they have to talk about how they're going to slash spending in medicare, to save medicare, how they'll have to slash spending in medicaid to save medicaid. their political problem on the other side of this tax debate is so much bigger than the republican problem. they're being too clever by half here. >> both sides have complicated hands. and if the democrats, we achieve what the president and some democrats in the senate are asking for in a narrow way around taxes, you're absolutely right. just as an aside on the bush era, this is the first time we didn't go
. >> john kerry has been very active in this issue. i think it will require a presidential push to convince a few. i think it's important that we move forward with that. just one additional thing. as i mentioned, and as we know, the world is so rapidly changing. the unpredictability of the world is the one thing but i think we would all agree on. look at the world, as i mentioned last night, the first time we convened here and look at it today. what will it be like four years from now darks we don't know. we have no real idea. anyone who predicted the world four years ago would like -- would be like this today, i would like to meet year. -- i would like to meet yuo. we need common principles of international behavior. we have to stick to those principles. all of us, at least during the cold war, we lived in a very predictable world. we did. we knew the divisions and capabilities. we do not know what's going to happen. i don't know what will happen in china. i tell believe that 1.3 billion people are going to be satisfied forever under the present regime in which they live. it seems to me it
